The Problem

Every day, our bodies are bombarded with a vast number of harmful toxins. The sources of these are many, and originate from the following sources:

air pollution from vehicle and factory emissions
pesticides and "heavy metals" in the environment and in the foods we eat
chemicals in cleaning products, drinking water, etc
chemical additives in processed foods
contact with fuels, solvents, etc
cigarette and cigar smoke - first and second-hand

Research has shown a correlation between these environmental pollutants and a number of conditions, including many forms of cancer. It is no surprise that the rate of certain cancers, such as breast cancer, intestinal and colon cancer, stomach cancer, and lymphatic system cancers are increasing, in spite of the advances in medicine and cancer detection technologies.

Although it is impossible to avoid all toxic substances, there are things one can do to reduce the chances of falling victim to their effects. We recommend a multi-pronged approach that includes diet, exercise, reduced exposure to toxins, and a periodic detoxification program designed to purge toxins from the body and bloodstream.


We recommend a diet that includes:

  • Green fresh vegetables rich in vitamins and minerals
  • High fiber grains and breads
  • Low sugar content - substitute Stevia Powder for sugar
  • Plenty of filtered water - preferably an active filtering process like reverse osmosis
  • Minimal amounts of processed foods, especially those loaded with chemical preservatives
  • Daily multi-vitamin supplement to compensate for the lack of sufficient nutrition in pre-packaged foods
  • Immune system enhancing supplements - essiac tea and colloidal silver are a good combination!


We recommend at least three 30-minute aerobic sessions per week, to keep metabolism levels high and to boost the immune system.

Reduced Exposure to Toxins

In addition to avoiding over-processed foods, make substitutions for products that contain solvents or chemicals. There are many natural substitutes for common cleaning products, including Baking Soda, Borax, Cornstarch, Isopropyl Alcohol, Lemon Juice, Mineral Oil, Soap (NOT detergent), Steel Wool, TSP, Vinegar, and Washing Soda (or SAL Soda).

Periodic Detoxification

There are a number of products available to detoxify and cleanse the body. Used with immune-system boosters and multivitamins, they help purge the body of impurities and chemicals that, if left in the body, can lead to serious illness. We recommend selecting from a number of high-quality formulas and supplements, all designed to fortify and cleanse body systems. Among the products we recommend:

DT4000 and DT4002, featuring essiac tea
: DT4000 (2-week detox) and DT4002 (4-week detox) contain our proprietary essiac formula and Super Supplemental multivitamin. Essiac helps the body to remove chemicals and heavy metals from the body, and is particularly effective in supporting liver detoxification and health. Essiac tea is taken at the maximum dosage for the 2 or 4 week period every 6-12 months, depending on the level of exposure to toxins and chemicals.
Super Supplemental (included in DT4000 & DT4002, also sold separately)
is a combination of essential vitamins and minerals designed to replace nutrients missing in today's over-processed foods. It is intended to be used as a daily supplement, and is especially helpful during the detoxification process when overall food intake may be lower.
Colloidal Silver (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
is an antimicrobial solution that supports immune system function. During detox, it helps fortify the immune system and eliminate bacteria, fungi, and viruses from the body. Many people take colloidal silver during the detoxification process, to help purge infection.
Stevia Powder (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
is an herbal sweetener made from the leaves of the stevia rebaudiana plant. It contains no glycosides, and is used commonly as a sugar substitute. During detox, it can be used to sweeten essiac tea.
Lymph Gland Cleanse (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
provides nutrients that help strengthen and improve glandular function and promote a strong immune system. Parthenium has often been confused with echinacea because both herbs have similar immune-boosting properties. Lymph Gland Cleanse provides an herbal source of many trace minerals and vitamins. Lymph Gland Cleanse contains: Parthenium root, Golden seal root, Yarrow flowers, Capsicum fruit
All Cell Detox (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)

Barley Juice Powder Concentrate (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
is derived from young barley plants, which have strong resistive functions. Barley greens are also a superior source of chlorophyll, the nutrient-rich byproduct of photosynthesis that makes plants green and is chemically similar to human blood. Barley greens provide 30 times more vitamin B1 and calcium than milk, seven times more vitamin C than oranges, and nearly five times the iron of spinach. Each capsule contains 480 mg barley juice powder.
CleanStart® (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
helps protect your body from common colon toxins that deplete and degrade your health. This two-week program strengthens the waste-filtering process, supports natural toxin elimination and subsequently improves energy and promotes a feeling of well-being.

Environmental pollutants and toxins can build up in the body, slowing the body’s natural cleansing processes.

It contains: Burdock root, Dandelion root, Fenugreek seed, Ginger root, Marshmallow root, Pepsin, Red clover flowers, Sarsaparilla root, Yellow dock root, Echinacea purpurea root, Lactobacillus sporogenes, Cascara sagrada, Milk thistle concentrate.
Heavy Metal Detox (made by Nature's Sunshine Products)
Scientists estimate that over 50 percent of U.S. residents are exposed to heavy metals in their environment. These metals, which include lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and arsenic, are found in industrial byproducts as well as in drinking water, pesticides and even things as common as dental fillings and cooking utensils.
Heavy Metal Detox is a potent detoxification support product designed to bind with heavy metals and remove them from the body. This formula also supports the liver it its efforts to cleanse, detoxify and replenish the body with essential minerals. The key ingredient, cilantro, appears to decrease the level of heavy metals in the body and increase their levels in the urine. Other ingredients include N-Acetyl-Cysteine, apple pectin, sodium alginate, kelp algae, l-methionine, alpha lipoic acid, magnesium and pyridoxal-5-phosphate.

  • Green fresh vegetables rich in vitamins and minerals
  • High fiber grains and breads

  • Minimal amounts of processed foods, especially those loaded with chemical preservatives
Get moderate exercise - about 30 minutes of aerobics per day, three times per week.
Take a multi-vitamin supplement such as Super Supplemental.

Use your favorite detox product to eliminate toxins from the body.

After the detoxification program is completed, it is recommended to continue use of Super Supplemental on a daily basis to ensure proper nutrition is attained. Colloidal Silver can be used if there is heavy exposure to bacteria or viruses. Use Stevia sweetener whenever possible instead of sugar, to avoid ingesting too much processed sugar. It has zero glycemic index, and can be used by diabetics as a sugar substitute.

This program can be repeated every 6-12 months, depending on the exposure level to toxins, processed foods, and chemicals.
